2016 Fund Raising Event

On Saturday 7 May 2016 we held our main fund raising event in her West Hall, Bay Road, Wormit.  We raised the fantastic sum of £606 -  a great result.  Our thanks go to all who supported this event.

At the event we present the prize winners from Wormit and Newport Primary Schools with their awards. They were asked to design panels for full size sails which will be erected on the boat at the Tay Road Bridge, Newport and the Bridgehead Boat, Wormit, for the weekend of the Tay Road Bridge 50 Years celebrations around 20 August 2016 - do look at these boats and other displays in the villages around that date.

Inside the Hall

We provided tea, coffee, juice and tray bakes to our visitors.

Committee members donated plants which we sold at the event, along with some of our seeds.

A sub group of the Committee are working hard to prepare the sails. We are applying hot wax to the stencilled outlines of the winning panels on the sails. The sails are recycled cotton sheets. Wormit and Newport Primary schoolchildren, including our winners, will then add batik dye to the sails.
